Entries in nook (7)



I wish I had a spot just like this. Work, rest and explore the world. All within a couple of square metres. By Anna Carin Design.


Another reading nook

Jo shared a reading nook yesterday, and I have a gorgeous one for you too.

These have me thinking about the third floor of my house (seen here at the end of the post), and how it's the perfect small space for a cozy reading nook. I think I need to move that project to the top of the priority list.

Reader request - alcove beds

Heather sent us the following request: I have a fantasy in which I own a cottage and of course it has one (or more) alcove beds--you know, those beds that are built right into the wall, sometimes with drawers or a trundle underneath, sometimes with a window in the nook itself? Can you put together a collection of those? I would love to see it, if only to fuel the fantasy. I LOVE the idea of sleeping/reading nooks, tucked away in corners. And sleeping arrangements at a cottage is always a dilemma because the more the merrier, and squeezing in as many potential "beds" as possible is always a must. Plus, you can get away with being an adult and sleeping in a not-so-ordinary bed, which in my mind is a total bonus. Many of the photos I found are of children's rooms but translate so well into ideal beds at a cottage. (P.S. Check out this post I did on napping nooks, and this one on couches in alcoves).
